A New Year With the Same Problems

    Having managed to work every day of my vacation, getting back into the swing of things isn’t really swinging. I hope you all had a Happy New Year. As we cross over into 2014, there is not a lot that has changed these past couple of weeks. People will not fully feel the effects of Obamacare. The economy is still “recovering.” And New York has | Read More »

    Why I #BackBuck and You Should Too

    Next year, conservatives have an opportunity to take back the Senate and expand the GOP majority in the House. The stage has been set for another cycle reminiscent of the wave election of 2010. The chance to make D.C. listen is nearly upon us. In Colorado, we have a conservative champion who is not ashamed of his principles, and is proud to stand with conservative | Read More »

    The Mundane Becoming Controversial

    I have a great ability to make the mundane controversial on twitter. Tonight I mentioned that I’m largely in agreement with Anglican theologian N.T. Wright’s view of what happens to people who run away from God. In essence, they lose their humanity. They are only brought back with love and the Gospel. This shouldn’t be controversial. It’s actually a 2000 year old theological concept. The | Read More »

    14 For ’14

    (1) AMEND THE UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSION WITH A ONE-YEAR DELAY OF OBAMACARE’S INDIVIDUAL MANDATE Reading the New York Times is like planting a listening device in Hitler’s bunker.

    #BackBuck and Boot Udall

    In December of 2009 I asked a couple of simple questions, “Do you believe that conservatives can win general elections?” And, “do you think that the GOP has the best chance since 1994 to make gains in the House and Senate this coming year?” In December of 2013 I find myself asking it once again. If the answer is yes, as I suspect it to | Read More »

    Chamber to Spend $50 Million Defending Unpopular Status Quo

    Here’s is a thought for a slow vacation week.  Congress’s approval rating has dipped into the single digits.  Anyone with any intellectual honesty – whether liberal or conservative – should agree that we need wholesale change in the ranks of leadership in both parties.  Yet the Chamber of [Government-Run] Commerce is prepared to spend $50 million in order to protect the status quo. The Wall | Read More »

    Why December 25th?

    One of the most popular theories and commonly taught explanations for why Christmas is on Dec. 25th is because the early church placed Christian holidays at times of Roman celebration to co-opt the local pagan festivals.Christians placed Christmas on Dec. 25th to co-opt Saturnalia, the mid-winter festival, or possibly the Festival of the Unconquered Sun — Sol Invictus. The theory went that Christians could get | Read More »

    Mordor Up Close

    Mordor Up Close

    The Orcs of Middle Earth had mouths stained with their black blood and bits of flesh stuck between their teeth. They would, over rather petty matters, kill and consume each other. The carnage between them would only cease when an elf, dwarf, hobbit, or human ventured too close. Unseen by most of the world, the carnage between the evil bands of Mordor played out over | Read More »

    Project Advent Tree: Putting the Christmas Focus back on Christ

    As this Christmas Season approached, I felt a stirring in my heart to recenter focus on the Miracle of Christmas, and as my focus began to shift I wondered: What if, instead of focusing on filling the base of our tree with presents and paper, ribbons and bows, we filled its branches with our prayers? What if we gave our hearts to God this Advent Season to magnify His greatness? What fruit would our tree bear?

    So this Advent, as we prepare for the coming of Christ, we have made our Christmas Tree into an Advent Tree – a tree filled with the prayers of our fellow men, which we will offer to the Lord on Christmas Night.Will you give us the gift of adorning our tree with your prayers? The joy of praying for you and your loved ones this Advent Season? The honor of offering your prayers to Jesus on Christmas Night?
